Toronto municipal election, 2018

Ontario's municipal elections are only four months away, including The Big Smoke.

So far there are no major progressive candidates in the running for mayor. There are murmers that big names like Mike Layton or Kristyn Wong Tam are waiting until 2022.

The ward map has been reconfigured, including three new downtown wards, which could hopefully lead to a left-ward tilt on the council floor.

Some high profile progressive candidates include TDSB trustees Chris Moise and Ausma Malik and former NDP MPP Matthew Kellway. Long time left wing councillor Janet Davis said she will not run again.

Well this rules out one possible high-profile challenger for John Tory.
